I still remember the first time I heard this PITB. Points of reference...didnt start listening to the Dead until 88, first show in 1990

For this show, I was working and had it streaming through earbuds. With a few minutes left in the song, at the depths of the insanity, I tore the earbuds off, threw them on my desk and jumped out of my chair to walk away...all in one motion. I didn't know what I had just heard, but knew that my point of reference for the Dead had just changed. I had to take a lap around the office to regain my mental composure.

There are many other great PITB's, but this one was my intro to another dimension of the band...and there was no going back.

I could not agree more. This has something in it that is irreplaceable and special in so many ways, and not just Phil.
A song of songs as they say.

A review of this show that you might find synchs up nicely with your initial reaction to the PITB from this evening. Quite a tour de force for the uninitiated.

When someone asks you why people play the bass. this is what you need to play to them. Phil bombing the way forth for the band But that's just the surface we are shoveling through. Is jerry leading? is Phil leading? does it matter? when this kind of interplay boils through the surface of their psyche into the instruments, you can follow a fractal and reach any conclusion you like. that's the power of this version. it's jazz; a path that any creative being aspires towards in some shape or form. an infinity of patterns and interplay that you get to pick and follow from the content of the noise wall that is put up through the sentient exploration and experiential familiarity that the grateful dead honed over the years; the essence of what makes them such a force.

Well don't keep me in suspense. I've given up on this sort of thing.

He tried to recreate the 11/18 /72 show.

Thankfully no audio beyond the set openers.

Actually I want you to listen/watch it so I don't have to. :)

But I guess your second sentence answers that.

I hope that's a Hangover II reference because it's spectacular.
